Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain blossoms-pat dry.
  2. "stuff"each flower with a piece of cheese and twist the ends to seal.
  3. Roll in flour.
  4. Dip in tempura batter Fry to a golden brown on all sides.
  5. Drain and eat hot.
  6. For Tempura: Mix all ingredients with a fork (I mix my dry ingredients first-then add water and eggs) Feel free to use cold beer in place of water-adds depth to the batter.

We used mozzeralla cheese instead and the kids just loved them. I did too!

I sorta followed the recipe. I only had low fat white cheddar cheese. I dipped mine in beaten egg and then into bread crumbs and fried them. I only made 4 for my friend and I to try. I wish I had more blossoms to cook. Talk about some good eating. I cannot describe the taste, but wow! There was an article in Awake! magazine about these December of 2004 and I have been wanting to try them since. Well worth the wait. Thanks for the recipe.
